Yes, this is what success looks like…

Well it’s not often that a burnt-out car can be viewed as a symbol of success, unless you happen to be a rioter, but this husk of an ex-Loeb Citroën C4 WRC marks the rise of Robert Kubica’s international motor sport career like a phoenix from the flames (did you see what I did there?)

The absurdly talented Pole, still plagued with the legacy of injuries he suffered at the start 2011, took a whopping 80+ second lead from Freddy Loix’s Peugeot 307 WRC on the opening day of the Rallye du Var and built to a colossal 5 minute advantage of the the field before it all went a bit wrong. The result of Kubica’s prang was a written-off car with no damage to driver or co-driver – but a huge success in terms of how his skills and his comeback are being viewed at the top level of the sport.

Bravo, Robert – you deserve all the praise indeed.
